From the Paper:

"Charlotte was an emotional and physical captive of her own circumstances. Right from the beginning she was projected to have been brought up in a gentle family with clear morality and values instilled in her. It was her unfortunate fate that she was friendly with La Rue. La Rue's past time, to mingle with gentlemen of doubtful characters at first may have roused Charlotte's curiosity but one see that she was not too enthusiastic about this change of environment.
""Charlotte was disappointed in the pleasure she had promised herself from this visit. The levity of the gentlemen and the freedom of their conversation disgusted her. She was astonished at the liberties Mademoiselle permitted them to take; grew thoughtful and uneasy, and heartily wished herself at home again in her own chamber." [Rowson, p.50 vol. I]
"Her only concern was her interest in one gentleman who seduced her. Montraville had been clever enough to tie her in emotional tangle so that when he popped the question of marriage and love Charlotte was double minded. Montraiville was clever to project his love in an emotional and passionate manner that he managed to blackmail her, convinced she did not love him enough to leave her family."
